Photo of the Day: Best of April

A striking red lake, a selfie on expedition, and a river of petals——here are the highlights from Photo of the Day.

Photo of Day took us around the world last month. From high above the salty red waters of Senegal's Lake Retba to below the seas off Baja California swimming with whales. One day we're on the historic sidewalks of Florence, Italy watching a chalk artist; the next morning we're inside an old tea house in Chengdu, China.

Check back everyday to see which destination the photographers of Your Shot will show us next.
